The problem described below has been fixed, and a fresh update to v7.10.1 should restore normal operation. There will soon be a version 7.10.2 to eliminate the confusion.
The new version 7.10.1 (only) of BOINC doesn't currently run on Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives.
This requires additional work by the Linux package maintainers, and we don't currently have a completion date. Please avopid updating for the time being: we will make a new version 7.10.2 available as soon as possible after the problem has been fixed.
In the meantime, please revert to an earlier version, and watch for announcements here.
